Today I went back to work after a three and bit week holiday, and it although it was bit of a shock getting up at 6am this morning, it was good to get back and catch up with my work friends.
Presently my dear friend Petra is visiting from Sweden so we've been showing Petra the sights of Hawkes Bay, and getting out and about so she can enjoy the New Zealand sunshine, there's certainly been a lot of that lately - we've had some of the hottest summer temperatures in many years!
Last week we stopped by one of the local Chocolate Shops, Petra and I are both big chocolate lovers, lol.
This chiller of yummy looking desserts greeted us at one of the cafes we visited, I couldn't decide what to have!!
This is the view looking back towards Napier from Clifton Beach.
Even though we've hardly been home over the past fortnight, I've been trying to fit in a bit of stitching in the evenings to wind down after being out and about all day. I'm going to try and finish a few of my wips over the next few weeks before starting anything new so out came the Lizzie Kate Christmas flip its and I stitched a couple more. I think I'm just over half way now.
Tonight we're going to my parents for dinner, its my Dad's birthday tomorrow so we're celebrating it a bit early.
Bye for now,
